Martin was caught on camera cussing out freshman guard Duane Notice during South Carolina’s loss to Florida on Tuesday.
“The one-game suspension is a result of inappropriate verbal communication as it relates to the well-being of our student-athletes,” said athletic director Ray Tanner in a statement.
Martin is known for being a hothead and exploding on his players or being ticked off in interviews, so this is nothing new. It doesn’t take much in the way of lip-reading skills to figure out what he yelled at Notice, either.
Associate head coach Matt Figger will act as head coach on Saturday at Mississippi State.
I have to figure that he’s only being punished because he was caught on TV doing it. I mean Bob Knight wouldn’t have been eligible to coach a game if he were suspended for every time he cussed out a player.
